"Never Forget You" as written by and Shingai Elizabeth Maria/smith Shoniwa....
What you're drinkin'
Rum or whiskey
Now don't you have a
Double with me
I'm sorry I'm a little late
I got your message by the away
I'm calling in sick today
So let's go out for old time sake

I'll never forget you
They say we'd never make it
My sweet joy, always remember me

We were mischievous
And you're always wearing black
I was so serious
You know my boyfriend's mama
Nearly had a heart attack
I'm sorry I'm a little late
You know the stripes of a tiger
Are hard to change
And notice, world feels like an empty stage
I wouldn't change a thing
So I'm glad your back again

I'll never forget you
They say we'd never make it
My sweet joy, always remember me
I'll never forget you
At times we couldn't take it all
My joy, always remember me

We just got swallowed up
You know I didn't forget you
We just got swallowed up

We just got swallowed up
But you know I didn't forget you
We just got swallowed up
By the whole damned world

What you thinking
Did you miss me
I've borrowed your silver boots
Now if you just let me
Give them back to you

I'll never forget you
They say we'd never make it
My sweet joy, always remember me
I'll never forget you
Although at times we couldn't change it all
Your my joy, always remember me

Don't you know that you're my joy
Always remember me

Don't you know that you're my joy
Always remember me

    General CommentI can't believe nobody has commented on this yet. I love this song, much better than Don't Upset The Rhythm in my opinion!

    I think this song is about a couple who split up, they both loved each other but it didn't work out. Both didn't think they could be friends, but its as if she's saying "You know what, yeah we can be friends. So it didn't work out? Who cares, lets just be good friends!"

    She's saying to him that he was always special to her, she says: 'So glad you're back again'
    Maybe after they split they didn't talk, and now they're back to being friends and she's glad because she really cares about him: 'Don't you know that you're my joy?' and she never wants him to forget her: 'Always remember me'

    This song is so lovely, it sort of has a 60's feel to it. One thing i'd like to add, it's one of those songs that just flies by! As soon as i press play, it's over again! Love it though! Plus, she has a fantastic voice!
